What games are you struggling with on this card????

Granted it can't do like 800 frames per second, but it does get the job done. You asked me about game play with Metro 2033 - other then in-game bugs, the graphics and performance is pretty good. Do I have the game on uber high.... no.... but they're not at the lowest settings either

When my 4890 met Just Cause 2 ...

Then again, I am addicted to eye candy. Apart from racing games, I'm the type of gamer that usually opts for eye candy + choppier gameplay over lowering details to achieve smoother play

Trust me, I with you on that, but luckerly I've been able to find happy mediums. Learned that with Crysis

Anyways I never said the card was the most powerful, but it does do a good job with the games I play. If you've played Metro and look at the settings I'm using, they're about avarage. Obviously I can't play in DX11 mode though

What Games Are You Playing?
it's to do with screen resolution sygnus21.

i play at 1920x1080 which is about 17% more pixels as your 1680x1050

so my games run 17% slower than yours, and it's noticable.

it's inevitable that games overtake grafix cards, and it's a good thing all in all - i just wish it wasn't so expensive - i wish i knew a rich compulsive upgrader who could hand-me-down his old stuff every few months...

You are right, resolution is a factor. Forgot about that for those running higher than 1680x1050.

Well I'll be gone a few days - American holiday - Thanksgiving.

Peace
